'''Constantin "Tino" Rossi''' (29 April 1907 – 26 September 1983) was Corsican singer and film actor. Rossi, born in Ajaccio, Corsica, was gifted with a voice well suited for opera. He became a tenor in the French cabaret-style. Later, he appeared in various movies. During his career he recorded hundreds of songs and he appeared in more than 25 films, the most notable of which was the 1954 production, ''Si Versailles m'était conté...'' directed by Sacha Guitry. His romantic ballads had especially women swooning and his Art song|art-songs by Jules Massenet (1842–1912), Reynaldo Hahn (1875–1947), and other composers, sold out theaters wherever he performed. He remains the only French singer to have sold more than 700 million records. His disc "Petit Papa Noël" alone sold 80 million copies...
